Question about 2000 Renault 181
How to turn off service light on renault megane scenic 1.6 year 2000/1

So its an Auto, to take it out of park the brake pedal needs to be depressed. If the switch on the brake pedal is not working it will not release the electric lock. If you have big feet, its not uncommon that you have loosened a wire down in the footwell.
So check the brake pedal switch, easy to do as the brake lights light up to confirm its working!
It can also be the electric soloniod that is faulty, but not so common.
On the more gloomy side it could be a fault within the gearbox computer.
If you read the handbook it tells you how manually release it out of park.

I have a 2002 Renault Megane 1.6 Convertible and experienced exactly the same fault. Needed a team effort but we found a very easy quick fix to this problem. If you take the plastic cover off from under the gear shifter, you will notice a release button covered by a rubber cover. Pressing this release button allows the gear shifter to move from its locked/jammed position. (This is not the fix but it helps with the fix).
If you are fortunate enough to have a 2nd person available, have them poke their head under the bonnet to watch the Gearbox cable move....while you are shifting the gear shifter inside the vehicle. Your partner will see that a cable with a plastic locking device (right hand side of the engine cover) has popped off the shifter for the transmission. Move the shifter until you can physically put the plastic locking device back on the shifter mechanism and your all good to go. No need for that new gearbox that you might have been quoted on!! An easy fix that I am surprised no mechanically minded professional/body in the world has volunteered the solution to. I wonder why????

my warning light comes on saying "check emissions" and the manual tells me to go to my Renault dealer immediately. What is wrong? Can we drive the car normally for any distance
